Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Hello world,

I don't know if that's possible, but I want to setup my account to show map notes by default (maybe via a checkbox in options), because OpenStreetMap choose to replace OSBugs, but I need to focus on the errors.

Thanks guys !

I would appreciate such an option, too.

This is not a complete solution, but if you usually visit the OpenStreetMap website by clicking on a bookmark, then you can add the notes layer in the URL like this:


The "N" at the end turns on the notes layer.

A more versatile bookmarking option than the layers= parameter is to add notes=yes, e.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/?notes=yes -- this will retain the previous view and tiles/layer source (which I think is set by cookies).

Maybe you should open such a feature request at one of the bugtracker systems used by the OSM maintainers:

see wiki/Bugs ... use your OSM account name and password for the TRAC system mentioned there ans choose component "website" or similar.

Also found github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/issues (will need a github account) which is NOT listet in the OSM wiki ... shame on us ...
